A stag do destination that's definitely 'Off the beaten track', Kiev is a relatively untapped resource for a stag weekend idea. Imagine the stag's face when you present him with a plane ticket to Ukraine. Since its peaceful Orange Revolution in 2004, Ukraine has been testing out its newfound democracy and ever-greater personal freedom and government transparency. What this means for you is that Kievites, the girls especially, are pretty much up for anything. If you’re looking for a stag party destination a bit off the normal tourist track, with a bit of edge, a bit of pre-democracy mystique still lingering in the air, then Kiev is perfect. Not to mention all the hottie Ukranian eye candy.
In a Nutshell:
- Kiev has natural city beaches along the Dnieper river; great for checking out the natives while soaking up the UV.
- Only 110km from Chernobyl, the site of the 1986 nuclear power plant disaster. There’s even a museum about it in Kiev.
- Home to the Kievo-Pecherska Lavra caves and monastery, complete with mummified monks.
- The currency is the Hryvnia (UAH) and you can get about 12 of them to the Pound.
- Beers cost around £2, expect cocktails to be double.
Kiev has a slew of the best stag party activities on offer. Fit in a spot of friendly rivalry on the paint ball field or go-karting track. Kick it on quad bikes or at the shooting range. Why not take a limo tour of the city accompanied by a beautiful young professional dancer, so you can admire the stunning domes of Kiev’s famous churches while the stripper shows off a pair of her own stunning domes. When your appetite is good and worked up, satisfy it with some Ukranian cuisine or any of a number of ethnic restaurants as good as any you’ll find in the West. If you're after something totally different, something you can be sure that no-one else has done on their stag do - let us take you on a trip around Chernobyl. Don't worry, you won't feel the radiation. Much.
Kiev’s club scene is bumping and has something to fit every taste and we make it our job to make sure you end up in the best ones. The party doesn’t really get started until after 11pm, so there’s plenty of time to get in the right spirits. From its open air clubs on the fashionable Hydropark island in the Dniepr river, familiar Western European-style expat clubs, beer cafes and traditional pubs, Kiev has all the venues you need for a proper stag weekend sendoff to singledom. With Chillisauce you’ll have no-wait VIP access to the hottest spots, which means less time in lines and more time checking out the talent on the dance floor.
Soups and starchy, meaty dishes are the norm for Ukranian food. You can’t leave without trying Borscht, the famous Ukranian soup made from beetroot which is much more delicious than it sounds. In Kiev you’ll find the usual range of international cuisine available, so there’ll be something to suit, no matter your taste.
Kiev’s temperatures drop into the single digit negatives in January and February. While August is warm, it’s also the wettest month. March through July are the most comfortable months.
Prices in Kiev are higher than the rest of Ukraine, but they’ll still compare well to most of Western Europe. Brands and items that convey a perceived status upon the purchaser are charged at a premium.
So What Do Chillisauce Do For You?
Essentially we provide a one-stop shop for sorting out everything for your Kiev stag weekend. We live, eat and breathe stag dos and after years of fine tuning, we know how to make perfect hen weekend. Obviously you could have a crack at organising it yourself (or through some other some small time operators!), however that does have its risks. You have to remember this was part of the USSR only a few years back and as with all former Eastern Bloc countries there are still a lot of - shall we say - "rogue elements" – who will all too happily separate an un-streetwise tourist from their hard earned cash!
We've seen it all. Your "central three star hotel" could turn out to be a fleabag motel on the outskirts of town. The truly unlucky might be forced by a reckless bouncer to pay 500 euros for a couple of brandies. Worst of all, you might end up at bars, clubs and restaurants that suck!
By booking with Chillisauce you rule out having to worry about these sorts of things. So have a look through the enclosed ideas and give us a call.
